Good Morning. It's Wednesday 15th January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Time running out for the Whites
Reports from St Marys claim that there is little to no chance of them parting with Che Adams in the January transfer window. This will come as a bitter blow for the Whites as their targets continue to dwindle. Eddie Nketiah has signed with Bristol City whilst it looks like Villa forward Jonathan Kodja is on his way to the City ground.
It will be interesting to see what kind of impact Nketiah makes at Ashton Gate, and whether his goal contribution (when given an opportunity to prove himself) makes a difference to their season? Dwight Gayle's injury is not thought to be as serious as first thought, and the 29 year old is expected to resume training later this month.
It is believed that Leeds have turned to the Continent and are in negotiations with the agent of Celta de Vigo forward Emre Mor. The 22 year old Turkish Striker has been unable to establish himself on loan at Galatasaray having not found the back of the net in 10 appearances. He moved to Celta Vigo is the Summer of 2017 for 13m euros.
Poveda due at Elland Road tomorrow, Hay
According to Phil Hay, Leeds target Ian Poveda is due at Elland Road tomorrow to look around the club! The 19y year old is torn between a move to Italy, or West Yorkshire.
Hay believes that while it’s not 100%, Poveda should still sign for Leeds.
“They thought it was all lined up to go this week and it should still be, provided things go well when they meet,” Hay said. “But there is interest from Italy so you never say never.”
